Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation

AKA Breast Enlargement Boob Job

Breast Augmentation is a procedure which involves the placing of an implant immediately behind the breast tissue or, if necessary, underneath the muscle that lies beneath the breast. The inserted breast implant pushes and projects the natural breast tissue forward, giving a fuller and larger breast appearance.

Breast shape and size should be an important focus of discussion with our surgeons when talking about breast augmentation. You will want to discuss whether to use round or anatomical shaped implants and review the many choices of size and weight available. Our surgeons will advise you on your specific concerns and the likely aesthetic improvement attainable.

It may be difficult to visualise your ultimate breast shape and size before surgery, and it is worthwhile to not only consider size but also the width of your chest and desired projection. A wider implant may provide more cleavage, but less fullness of the breast. A higher profile implant will provide more projection and fullness but have less width and cleavage.

Your body's size and characteristics, along with your desire for a specific shape and size, will normally decide what is possible. You should be aware that after implant surgery one woman's breasts will be different than another’s, even though the same implant size and shape were used. Also be aware that each woman's body is different and before and after photos of women who have had breast implant surgery, often in the media, are not likely to apply to you.
